My experience with Adobe Premiere

with 5 comments

I tried to use Adobe Premiere and Adobe Aftereffects to create my one minute video. However there were a lot of obstacles I had to overcome in order to come up with the final product. I pretty much had to switch to a different movie-editing program.   In the beginning, Premiere was quite easy to use because the layout of the interface was organized properly, as well as my background knowledge in using Adobe programs helped. I created my sequence with the help of online tutorials. I was quite surprised at how user friendly it was to use because all the icons were pretty self explanatory.  I also researched the difference between Premiere and After Effects and learned that the workflow is between them is really simple. So, I decided to open up my Premiere file in After Effects. The tutorial simply told me to import the file into the After effects library, and from there you can drag it on to the sequence and you can open the clips on the timeline. The clips wouldn’t  play in real time and none of the effects would apply properly. I tried googling the problem but no solution would come up, so then I decided to apply the effects and colour corrections within Premiere. The next problem I had was that for my export options, it didn’t give me the option to export it as a movie. It would only let me export the audio by itself. There was something wrong with my Premiere because everyone else who had Premiere had the option to export it as a movie. There wasn’t much help available from the help menu either which is why I switched programs. I decided to start my project again in Final Cut Express and I didn’t have any problems in that program. Overall, I had a horrible experience with Adobe Premiere because of its missing functions and the lack of help available to solve certain issues. I will never use Premiere again– atleast the one on my computer!

Super Phone!

with 7 comments

My old cellphone, Samsung R500, was very well- designed and suited my needs perfectly. Although it wasn’t the prettiest phone—a flipphone, it was very light-weight and very strong. It lasted me 2.5 years! This phone was amazing, I would drop it almost 3 times daily and it continued to work. It was really strong because it came with two face plates(one blue and one red) that you can switch. Eventually one side actually broke off but it still continued to work. But then I dropped it and the two parts completely broke. The funny thing was that the keypad continued to work! Even though flip phones are outdated it was perfect for me because I am not much of a texter and I use my phone mostly for calling purposes. It was very user friendly as well because it had a very simple interface. Every function can be found in the menu and then the message tab and contacts appeared on the bottom of the screen. It also had GPS, radio and streaming TV, so it wasn’t completely dull.
